Hi, I'm Erin and I'm a fashion stylist. There are now so many different types of Oxford shoes and so many different ways you can wear them. I'm going to show you one simple option. Our model, Heather is wearing a pair of black Oxford pumps.. basically an Oxford with a heel. Yep, these babies blend the masculinity of the original with the sex appeal of a pump. Gotta love that. I paired these shoes with an ankle length pair of tailored black pants, a really pretty tie neck black and white blouse and a vest to pull it all together. The streamline pant really shows off the shoes while the blouse adds femininity to the overall look. Because the shoe does have manly roots, it's important to add feminine touches. To accessorize the outfit, I added some silver earrings and a stunning silver cuff. If you wanted a slightly more casual and comfortable feel, you could always swap the Oxford pump for a flat version. Flat Oxfords would easily work with the look our model is wearing. Oxford shoes are really versatile. If you don't love this look, try the shoes with a dress, skinny jeans or a skirt and top a la Sienna Miller. Sporting these stylish shoes is a subtle way of saying, Hey, I'm not afraid to take fashion risks.
